Tips on Online Job Search: An ABCNews Video

This ABCNews video discusses strategies used in online job search. Building on the advices shared in this video, I would like to emphasize the following:

1. Online job search is more than just submitting resumes and applications online. It is about creating a job candidate’s “visibility” online --- you want recruiters to find you these days.
2. Job candidates need to build a good online reputation.
3. Job seekers need to join online communities, such as LinkedIn, and network with other professionals online. Today’s networking is about participating in online discussions and giving valuable inputs to online communities. Giving intellectual answers in online forum is a good indication of a person’s expertise.
4. Job seekers need to build an authentic personal brand by communicating with consistent messages and having a frequent online presence.

What are your experiences in online job search?
